The debut episode of The Golden Girls finds outspoken octogenarian Sophia Petrillo (Estelle Getty) moving into the Miami home of her fiftysomething daughter Dorothy Zbornak (Bea Arthur) after her retirement home burns down. Dorothy is already sharing living space with her friends (and contemporaries) Rose Nylund (Betty White) and Blanche Devereaux (Rue McClanahan) -- only it looks as if the threesome are about to be broken up. It seems that Blanche has fallen in love with her current beau, Harry (Frank Aletter), and intends to marry him, despite Rose's feelings that there's something not so wild about Harry. Charles Levin appears as the girls' gay housekeeper Coco, a character originally intended as a "regular," while future Designing Women co-star Meshach Taylor shows up as the cop who delivers some very surprising news about Blanche's latest amour.
